    So we are planning on a late morning cerermony, and than a brunch to follow. We would love to plan something in the evening as well. Like a sunset party or something similar to that.

    I wonder if anyone had any suggestions. We are getting married in Florida, so its not an AI type thing. We were trying to steer away from a reception due to budget restraints. Is it possible to organize something with not breaking into our budget to much?

      I'm getting married in Florida too! Our ceremony is at 10 am, then after pictures we will go out for lunch. What about planning some type of group activity that you and your guests could do together. Or maybe even if your hotel hosts cocktail hour by the pool meet up with your guests there. (we may do this).

      Also I think it would be perfectly fine also if you decided to not do anything after the brunch as well. That way guests can have some time to enjoy their vacation. Just an idea!

        What about having an "informal" reception/cocktail hour? You could set up hors d'oeuvres and serve pitchers of drinks both alcoholic and non. That's a way to cut costs down..just offer a couple of different kinds of each and let guests help themselves.

        It would help knowing the type of ceremony/setting you're going to be having. I absolutely think you can put something affordable together without spending much. I'm a budget bride myself and refuse to spend thousands on anything that can be done for less.

          Have you thought about doing a sunset cruise that serves cocktails and h'ors doeuvres?
